After a major re-adjustment I have restored the problems of last month. You may have noticed that I didn't give the game information under each picture of my new games. My designer and I could not find a reason other than I had downloaded Windows 10 and something in that change caused the problem....
So, June draws to an end. The weather here in Northern Germany remains extremely pleasant. I suspect the gardeners hereabouts are desperate for rain. As I am going to look at a game in the Wild West, it is appropriate to say that a Red Indian Rain Dance is called for. I have persuaded my squaw to...
A few days ago I received a mail from my old Spanish friend Anki Toner. Some of you will know his site but most of you won't. The link is www.cyclingboardgames.net Anki is easily the world's expert on cycling games. And he is a master of the internet. If my site is the burger bar in a street market...
I like May. Two Bank Holidays for a start. The weather remains calm and benign. Are we heading for a scorcher of a summer or will fate take a hand and inflict on us a seriously wet and cold summer? The city is full of tourists and it is not even school holidays yet, so firms that organise city...
The giraffe (genus - Giraffa camelopardalis) is an African mammal, the tallest living terrestrial animal and the largest ruminant. Its chief distinguishing characteristics are its extremely long neck and legs and its distinctive coat patterns. It's appearance, being rather unique, makes it easily...
Let's face it, camels are ugly, very ugly. Yet, their very ugliness renders them rather cute and game makers have often remembered this and included their images in games. The Camel (genus Camelus) is known as 'The Ship of the Desert', not because it's humps are full of water but because their body...
Last month I mentioned a new game called Deus, published by Pearl Games. I am glad to say that is very original nice to play. It reminds you of deck-building games like Dominion and Thunderstone but, at the same time, it isn't like them at all. It has a new system which challenges you create an '...
I hope you all have recovered after indulging in Christmas and New Year. Here at Chez-Osten, all is well. We have joined another Bridge club so we are now playing three times a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday). Jürgen gave me a nice birthday present, Doe Schlösser des König Ludwig. It seemed to...
Busy month on the card games front, mainly due to help from three of the nicest people in Europe, namely Rudolf, Gretel and Anki. Many thanks and your donations and advice. Both are greatly appreciated. In January (my birthday month) I am hoping to get some older German board games. My son Peter...
Another month goes by. When you are an old man like me, the years  pass by far too quickly. At least, it feels that way. Sigh!!! My normal electic collection of new items this month. Which is not good says Dusa because she feels we have too many "dusty old games" already.  She is right but I just...
